[audio]Typescenes and the book of Ruth - Tim Bulkeley
Typescene sounds like a typical technical term scholars use make Bible stories dull :( In this podcast I hope to show you it's exactly the opposite and that by spending 5 minutes learning about typescenes you can discover a livelyness you may have missed, even in a well-loved story like Ruth. (Other passage you should have ready, or look at before listening are: Genesis 24; 29 & Exodus 2:15ff..)

[audio]Exodus 32: Who dunnit? - Tim Bulkeley
Until Jeremy of Free Old Testament audio mentioned it the other day in his Exodus 32 - Who Brought the People out of Egypt? I had never really noticed how this text, the "Golden Calf" episode, offers three different answers to the question: Who brought Israel out of Egypt! When there are "rough edges" like this in a text it is a critic's job, any sort of critic worth their salt, to pick at them and hope to see more of how or why the text is constructed...

[audio]E100 week 4: Exodus 1-18: Freed from other masters - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In this podcast, before looking at the passages selected for week 4, I'll do a quick overview of what I think we should have noticed from Genesis (a sort of 30 second recap of weeks 1-3 ;) Then I'll try to set the scene for week 4, which covers the story of the Exodus. Phrasing it that way though is perhaps not the best summary of Exodus 1-18. After listening to my podcast maybe you can suggest a better one?

[audio]E100-21: Exodus 19:1 -€“ 20:21: The Ten Commandments - Dr Tim Bulkeley
This reflection focuses on two things from this reading, the significance of calling Israel (in the context of making a covenant) a priestly kingdom and a holy nation, and how we should read/understand the ten commandments. (For that part it may help to listen to some of the podcasts here, in particular Casuistic and apodictic: part 1: What the terms mean.) We'll also end by realising what it means to say Yahweh is a jealous God, and very briefly start thinking about what that jealousy means...

[audio]E100 week 5: The Law and the Land - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Despite its title this five has little about the law, and not enough about the covenant (binding agreement) to which this law belongs. The selection of passages (the first time I have strongly differed from the choice made by the organisers) is weighted towards American Evangelical favourite Sunday School stories. Having got that gripe off my chest, we'll notice how in these readings we learn (again) about what it does and does not mean to be God's chosen people...

[audio]E100-19: Exodus 12: A great festival, but a huge theological problem - Dr Tim Bulkeley
I'm torn two ways on how to respond to this reading: * on one side, a great opportunity to explain Passover, the great festival that celebrates God as liberator, saviour and enimy of powerful oppressors * on the other, when I read (the Bible or the Newsâ¦) I tend to sympathise with those who suffer, and while in earlier chapters that's the Israelites, here I feel the pain of bereaved Egyptian parents â how can the God who we have discovered so far in Genesis commit such a barbarous act? There...

[audio]E100-22: Exodus 32:1 – 34:35: The Golden Calf - Dr Tim Bulkeley
This passage was probably chosen because it contains two famous "Bible stories", the Golden Calf (in which a priest does what the people want, and becomes so successful that drunkenness, idolatry and other stupidity reigns) and the time Moses got to see God's backside. But more troublingly it is another passage where God commands and demands killing. I can't offer easy answers, indeed in one 5 minute podcast what did you expect ;) but I will return to these passages and examine the issue in podc...

[audio]E100-16: Exodus 1-2: Naming names - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In reading (by which I mean understanding, making sense of) these chapters weâll find that noticing unusual details, things that stick out, can be a real clue to what is important. Naming, and not naming, are really significant here, not least that God is not named â oh, Godâs talked about, but âGodâ is a title or description not a name, this âGodâ will get a name in the next chapter⦠Here, too, well find that hearing echoes of other parts of Scripture can be strong clues to meaning...

[audio]E100-20: Exodus 13-14: Crossing the Reed Sea - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In this podcast we'll notice just how firmly this passage tells us that the miracle at the Reed Sea* was indeed entirely a miracle. We'll notice how good source critics were/are at spotting small discrepancies in texts, but also how little the composers of the Bible seemed to care about detail, concerned with things that matter (relationships, especially and particularly our relationship with God) rather than "facts" which are merely of secondary importance...

[audio]E100-17: Exodus 3-4: Getting the holy between your toes! - Dr Tim Bulkeley
What matters, what really matters, is getting the holy between our toes. In this reading we discover Moses getting on first name terms wiuth God, and what (perhaps) God's name means. This is "holy ground" even compared to most other parts of the Bible, so take your shoes off, and listen. No, God's name yhwh does not just mean the 'One who is' and it for sure does not mean "Don't ask, because I won't tell you!" but to find out what more I think it means listen in ;)
